Answer: 
On the Home Depot website go to page with this wall timer. Below the timer picture will be other pictures and 2 videos. Watch the video while standing next to the timer and follow along with the video. It will give you step by step instructions on how to program. I say to watch this on your smart phone or tablet because if you miss a simple step along the way it will not program correctly.

Things to Know before you start. “ENTER" Button will be pushed after everything you do. There is two parts to programming this timer. 1st is the setup( just entering the date, time, daylight savings time, and where you live reference the sun. These are known as CAL, CLOCK, DST, and ZONE. The 2nd part is the ON/OFF times to program. Most people only use P1 for everyday of the week with one on time and one off time. Ignore P2,and the rest of the programs.
Use a tooth pick and press the reset button for four seconds or until “RESET “appears in the screen.
1. Push the SETUP button one time. CAL will appear, Push ENTER. Use + to get to 2016 and push ENTER. Use + to March(for example)push ENTER. Use + to the day, push ENTER.
2. CLOCK will appear. Push enter. Use - /+ to set the hour (PM?AM correct) push ENTER. +/- to set minutes. Push ENTER.
3. DST will appear. Push ENTER. It already says ON so push ENTER (unless you live in AZ then set to OFF)
4. ZONE will appear. Push ENTER. (depending on where you live) Choose Sout,Nort,or Cent. Push ENTER. Push ENTER 4 more times. ( this is for the dawn and dusk times) When SAVE appears push enter and you are done with the setup phase. YEAH!!!
5. Now, Push the setup button TWO times.
6. P1 will appear. Push ENTER three times. Dawn will appear. Use the + and go to Dusk. Push ENTER. PRO6 off will appear with all the days of the week. Push ENTER. Dawn will appear (if dawn is what you want for the off time push enter, if not push + to go to TIME and enter a time. Be sure to push enter after hour and minute. )
7. P2 will appear but we don’t carry about P2. Push the AUTO button (in the middle on the top) and you are done!!!!
Thing to play with. When in the First setup stage try pushing the + and – and scroll through the CAL, CLOCK, DST AND ZONE AND BACK TO CAL. This is how you get to the one part if it needs changing (like the clock). Now in the Programming the on/off times when it says P1 push the +and – and scroll through the programs. This is how we make sure no other program is overlapping. If you find an overlapping one push enter, then +(when it says SET) to DEL(delete) then push enter. Read Less

Answer: 
I'm an engineer and had trouble too. It was operator error. I was not pressing AUTO at the end of the programming cycle. Try the YouTube video. Search "Defiant timer programming". The on/off button should work even if not programmed. If not, it may be wired wrong.

You can download instructions from the website if you lost those for programming. Do not even try to call the help line, they are totally worthless (I tried).

Bottom line, failure to program is almost always a wiring problem. Check to see if you have a 3way or 2way wiring. Make sure you have it wired correctly! Read Less

Answer: 
With the Defiant timer you can.
There is a Honeywell and Intermatic timer that look very similar but you can not use LED with them. The Defiant timer notes that you can use with all three types of bulbs on the lower left hand side of the packaging.

Answer: 
Yes it is rated for CFLs. Sounds like a loose wiring connection or possibly total wattage of bulbs exceeds ratings for sockets.

Answer: 
I have this issue with my older intermatic unit but I do not have this issue with the new Defiant timer switch. Swap out the bulbs for 60 watt standard bulbs and see if you still have the same issue. It may be that the bulbs are just not pulling enough juice through them but again this new one does LED so that should not be an issue.

I am using CFL bulbs in a lamp that is controlled by this timer device, and have experienced no problems. If memory serves me, my timer device was purchased over a year ago; I do not know if the manufacturer has made any changes to the timer since the time of my purchase that would affect your usage.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 319 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I purchased this timer to control my porch light. I often leave the house before dark and return after dark. In order to avoid leaving a light on all day and to make the house appear more "lived in" I added timers to some of my light switches. This timer was easy to install, (I'm a mid-sixty year old grandma with little electrical experience) and the timer is easy to program as long as you have the instructions in front of you. The timer has been functioning properly and I really like that I can have multiple programs for different days of the week and different times of the day. Over-riding the timer is easy and you have the option to either override all the timer functions so that it becomes a manual switch or you can do a 'short term' over-rider and the timers will resume the scheduled programing. As with all in wall timers I've encountered, this is a large device and you'll want to make sure you have enough room in your box for all the wires and the timer to properly fit back into the wall box. The only complaint I have with this timer is the programing buttons on the inside of the panel are so incredibly small that it is VERY difficult to read the print on them when i want to add or change a program. October 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Digital wall timer review This was fairly easy to install because it was a replacement for one that only lasted 2 months. These work great and are really nice when your away for a couple of days. Hopefully this one lasts longer. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent timer, highly recommended Excellent timer. easy to install and works great. Turns on and off at dusk and dawn, when I want lights on and off automatically. One downside,backside size is a bit big, so if you want to fit it into an old wall outlet, it might be a bit tricky, however when installed, works great. Light is an added extra, thought not very necessary. September 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The programing is complex. Instructions for programing are tedious and not as complete as I would like. If you experience an AC power outage, the time will need to be reset. Difficult to figure out how to do it. It needs a back-up battery that will maintain the settings, including the time, date, etc. October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install... easy program Great timer. Installed within 30 mins and programmed in about 10 mins for the whole week. The install instructions are spot on if you have basic electrical knowledge. The buttons on the device are very small but manageable. Display screen is bright and large enough to read. Great product thus far. Installed and working for about a week or so. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Controls Porch Lights I replaced a similar switch that stopped working after about 6 years. This switch requires a ground wire, which the other did not. The backlight feature on this switch is better than the old one, making it easier to read. Programing it is a little tricky mainly because the buttons are so tiny, but once it is setup, it works just fine. October 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Timed performance Quit after little more than one year. Worked fine while it lasted. Will not replace, I'm done with this brand. October 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Energy and Effort Save This switch was easy to install. Directions included were easy to follow, especially after the Home Depot Electrical Dept. gentlemen walked me through them and I took notes. Programming in straight forward if you follow the directions enclosed with the switch. I didn't even have to kill the power to do the install. October 11, 2016
